US. 1990) Robert De Niro. Ray Liotta. Joe Pesci. Lorraine Braco. 145 mins. Liotta plays Henry Hill. a real-life mafloso. with De Niro as his mentor in crime.

Hell is unleashed once more and as the Cenobites and the now skinless Julia (Higgins) return to prey on our heroine. Hell hath no fury like a woman skinned.

Sean Connery. 111 mins. A handful of immortals battle through the centuries to win a mythical prize. A curious mixture of romance in 16th century heather and car chases in present day New York. the film is an inclegant. often ludicrous. but enjoyably daffy adventure. Edinburgh: Cameo.

UK. 1992) Anthony Hopkins. Vanessa Redgrave. Helena Bonham Carter. Emma Thompson. 142 mins.

Farrow) find their domestic life rocked by the news that their best friends are splitting up. Doubts about their marriage are heightened by Mr R's half-innocent dalliance with a young student (Cape Fear‘s Juliette Lewis). More than a life-initating-art movie. given the recent allegations about the Allen household: it is a searching and incisive character comedy. his best since Hannah and her Sisters. See review. Glasgow: Odeon. Edinburgh: Odeon. Strathclyde: UCl Clydebank.

I Indochlno (12) (Regis Wargnier. France. 1992) Catherine Deneuve. Vincent Perez. Lihn Dan

of his most dignified roles. French Film Festival. Glasgow: GF’I‘. Edinburgh: Filmhouse.

I It Came from Outer Space (PG) (Jack Arnold. US. 1953) Richard Carlson. Barbara Rush. Charles Drake. Russell Johnson. 81 mins. Made in 3-D. this prototype ‘friendly alien' movie broke some new ground. but also harbours some pretty familiar stereotypes (tolerant. misunderstood scientist. shoot-first-ask-questions-later lawman) and some pretty naff acting. Edinburgh: Cameo. I Jacob's Laddet(18) (Adrian Lyne. US. 1990) Tim Robbins. Elizabeth Pena. Danny Aiello. 113 mins. Vietnam vet Jacob Singer is seeing some very strange things, like nurses with demons‘ homs and people with faces straight out of 3 Francis Bacon painting.

Black yuppie Flipper Purify (Snipes) launches into an ill-fated affair with his Italian-American secretary (Sciorra) and adds fuel to the fire of inter-racial tensions.

I The Lawnmower In (15) (Brett Leonard. UK/US. 1992) Pierce Brosnan. Jeff Fahey. Jenny Wright. 108 mins. Backward gardener (Fahey) is the subject of experiments to increase learning potential using drugs and Virtual Reality technology. Cue weird side effects and telekinetic powers.

I A League Of Thalr Own (PG) (Penny Marshall. US. 1992) Geena Davis. Lori Petty. Tom Hanks. Madonna. 124 mins. As World War II siphons off America’s baseball players. attention turns to the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League.

time. going though the usual motions to track

down a crooked real estate and narcotics boss. Dazzlingly original it is not. but the spectacular

from Pesci mean this one could run and run.

Edinburgh: UCI. Strathclyde: UCI Clydebank.

I The Little Foxes (PG) (William Wyler.US.1941) Bette Davis. Herbert Marshall. Teresa Wright. Patricia Collinge. Dan Duryea. 116 mins. A superny acted and sumptuously conceived screen adaptation of Lillian Hellman‘s play. set in the Deep South. where a sickeningly wealthy family turns in on itself through the corruption of greed and hatred.

I The Lost Boys (15) (Joel Schumacher. US. 1987) Jason Patrick. Corey Haim. Barnard Hughes. 97 mins. Anaemic comic horror as a Santa Monica teen falls into bad company in the shape of a mad. bad and dangerous-to-know gang of vampires. Constant MTV visuals make this an altogether resistible affair.
